Well this is terrifying. A 51-year-old man was hanging clothes on the balcony of his home in Changsha, Hunan province when he was suddenly hit in the knee by an arrow.
The man, surnamed Wang, was rushed to the Changsha Central Hospital on January 17 with the metal arrow pierced nearly 12 centimeters deep into his bent knee, according to Xiaoxiang Morning News. It had reportedly belonged to Wang’s neighbor, an archery enthusiast surnamed Liang, who was practicing shooting around 50 meters away at the garden of their community compound when the arrow went loose.
Wang underwent emergency surgery and as of yesterday, was still in the hospital under observation. It’s likely he will have difficulty using his leg and an aversion to the smell of fresh laundry for a long while, both of which outcomes are just terrible.
